Pain Medications

Over-the-counter and prescription pain medications are one of the most common non-surgical treatments for temporary relief of spinal conditions that cause both acute and chronic back pain and/or neck pain. Pain medications may include acetaminophen (Tylenol), NSAIDS (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen, naproxen and celebrex), oral steroids, muscle relaxants, narcotic drugs and anti-depressants.
